The leaves of Oolong Amber GABA Teacontain very high levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) due to a special processing performed in an anaerobic, nitrogen-enriched environment. The production technique for this type of tea was invented in Japan in 1987 and later adopted by Taiwan, which understood its potential and perfected it resulting in tea of the highest quality.

This tea, oxidized to 50%, reveals an intense fruit flavor in the cup, with sweet notes that linger pleasantly.


GABA Tea is a product that has become very popular over time due to its concentration of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which provides several benefits to the body.

These teas, typical of Taiwan, undergo a special process in processing the leaves, which are left to rest for hours in an environment where oxygen has been replaced by nitrogen: this process stimulates the production of high levels of GABA in the leaves.

The GABA molecule, which allows us to relax our nervous system, helps our body in the elimination of free radicals and has many other health benefits: it lowers blood pressure, reduces stress and improves sleep quality.

Because it is so popular, tea produced by this technique is nowadays processed to create different variants (oolong tea, red tea and green tea) to suit various taste preferences.

After harvesting, Amber GABA oolong tea leaves are dried in the sun for a short time. This is followed by a rest period in an anaerobic, nitrogen-rich environment to stimulate extra GABA production in the leaves. The next step is oxidation, which begins with hand massaging of the leaves by experienced masters: once the leaves have reached the desired level of oxidation (about 50 percent), the leaves pass through a charcoal oven, effectively stopping enzyme activity. Next, the leaves are rolled by hand to the desired shape and finally dried using a special machine. Once the tea has been dried, it is ready to be consumed.

Preparation of Amber GABA oolong tea

We strongly recommend infusing Amber GABA oolong tea using the traditional Chinese method (Gong Fu Cha) with a gaiwan with a capacity of about 150 ml. By following this preparation, multiple infusions can be made with 5 grams of leaves that are useful for best capturing all the flavor nuances of the tea.

Heat the water to a temperature of 90°C: proceed to briefly rinse the leaves and then to an initial 15-second infusion. Keeping the water at the same temperature, you can then continue to exploit the same leaves by adding more water and increasing the infusion time by 10 seconds each time (15 - 25 - 35...).

This tea has a longevity of about 7 infusions.

For a more classic preparation according to the Western style we recommend 3 grams of leaves in a 200 ml cup with water at 90°C for an infusion time of 3 minutes.

For a better tasting experience we suggest that you strain the tea as soon as the infusion time is over. The infusion times we suggest can be slightly modified to your liking to achieve a more or less intense taste.

We recommend storing in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
